put a bell on that damn cat

Cats are killing more birds than any other animal in America.  3.7 billion birds every year according to a new study by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.    On top of that the American Humane Association found that 70% of the cats spend some time outside running free.  3,700,000,000 is a lot of song birds, qats are excellent hunters with extremely high rate of kills per try.

Additionally they kill 20 billion small mammals, babies most often.

Keep your damn kats inside, or put a loud jingle jingle bell on'm.  And don't bitch about the few birds killed by wind turbines, which by the way kill far fewer than either car strikes, house windows, tall buildings, fences, crop or yard chemicals.  It's amazing we have any birds.

  2. It's funny how if cats kill small rodents, they're OK. But if they kill songbirds, they're vicious animals. I don't like cats, but I don't hate them enough to kill them.

    1. No, I won't be killing anybodies cats or dogs, but I will put a bell colar on them if I can catch them what creeps in my bushes, of course so far I have never been able to catch one.
